Mail stolen in Mara mailbox break in

  • Apr. 11, 2018 3:30 p.m.

Mailboxes were broken into and mail stolen from a box at the Mara Heights Road/Clancy Frontage Road junction south of Sicamous.

On April 5, Sicamous RCMP received a report of the break in that occurred sometime overnight. Police later noted 10 boxes were broken into and empty envelopes from one were later found littered on the ground near a business on Riverside Avenue in Sicamous.

Sgt. Murray McNeil said Canada posed will be replacing the older mailbox unit with a newer, more secure model.

“Affected residents will be required to pick up their mail at the post office until the new boxes are installed,” said McNeil.
